Warner Bros. And DC To Focus On Lower Budget Superhero Movies Twice A Year?
Despite the fact that many fans are anxiously waiting for the likes of Wonder Woman and the Justice League to be brought to the big screen, a new report indicates that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's focus will now be on low budget adaptations of the likes of Suicide Squad...
According to Bleeding Cool, DC Entertainment's big news for 2014 may be that they are planning on prioritising, "A series of lower-prominence comic books being turned into relatively lower budget movies." This matches up with earlier reports that Warner Bros. have turned to David Goyer as a Kevin Feige-like character to work on treatments for adaptations which include Booster Gold, Deathstroke, Sandman, Team 7 and Suicide Squad, with the latter being specifically mentioned as a movie which would need only a $40 million budget. Others could apparently be made for as little as $20 million. Their release schedule would be on a two-a-year basis in the Spring and Fall, giving Warner Bros. an opportunity to make a big profit and perhaps even expand the worlds of Batman and Superman in the process. There's nothing to say how this will impact their big budget tentpoles, but how do you guys feel about this news? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below!
